  3. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Hi all. I'm a 26 yr old newbie here, hoping to be debt free by the time my 30th bay rolls around. I have been saying I was going to focus on paying off my debts/budgeting for YEARS now (prior goal was by age 25, which came and went). I am almost done with reading the Dave Ramsey book and love...

    Firstly about my friend's mom. She is doing SO WELL!!!! She is at home and (as usual) trying to do as much as possible. (She can't sit still.)

    OK, I really DON'T have a few minutes, but I'm making a few minutes. LOL We are finally in our own house again. The payment on this house is the same as our last house, and in the 7 mths we were living in my grandparents' basement, we have been able to save up quite a bit of money. We used...
  10. Homesteading and gardening

  11. Meal planning
    I haven't done this in ages and probably the reason I didn't stick with it is I was too ambitious during the weeknights. As much as I love to cook, coming home from a stressful job five nights a week can take it's toll and I would give up on the "planning" part. So, I decided to KISS (Keep It...

    All of my children were homeschooled up until September. My 2 younger boys and my twin girls (3 days of pre-k) started to go to a private school then, after we were able to get an almost full scholarship. We found out a couple of days ago that the school (all of 11 students) would not be...
